No one wants to look older than they are. More and more people are finding that they can erase years off their face with Botox treatments. In the last decade, Botox has gained exponentially in popularity as one of the top ways to remove fine lines and wrinkles from your face. However, in the last few years, more 20 and 30 year olds have learned that they can prevent wrinkles from forming with some preventative Botox treatments. Open Door Med Spa is here to talk about how preventative Botox works to help stop the aging process on your face.

How Does Botox Work?

Many people understand that Botox works to smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the face, but it is also used for other medical purposes. Some people have found success in using Botox to treat migraines. Others have found that they can get rid of excessive underarm sweating when they use Botox. By in large, Botox is most successful when reducing fine lines and wrinkles in the face though. It works to block signals from the nerves to the muscles that causes them to contract. As it relaxes the muscles no wrinkles form.

How Does Preventative Botox Work?

The smallest wrinkles start to form at a young age as repetitive movements of the skin happen. Where the muscles have contracted over time, wrinkles form and become permanently embedded in the skin. When you slow down these muscle movements early, you can prevent deep lines and wrinkles from forming in your skin. Believe it or not, many people in their 20s can start to see wrinkles form. Other people won’t see any winkles start to form until they enter their 40s. There are several factors that play a role in wrinkle formation including sun damage, smoking and other lifestyle choices.

Is There Anything Bad About Preventative Botox?

Many people think of Botox as a large expense they don’t want to get wrapped up in. However, when you start treatments at a young age, you may find that you don’t have to get treatments very often. However, it is important that patients understand that you can overuse Botox, regardless of how old you are. When you overuse Botox, it can cause muscle atrophy which can have the reverse effect on your face and make even the finest lines stand out. This makes it more important than ever to work with a reputable and trained professional anytime you are using Botox to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
